Bahamasair is the national airline of the Bahamas with their headquarters located in the capital, Nassau. The airline was established in 1973 and the local airline offers scheduled flight services to 32 regional destinations around the US, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamas.

Current domestic routes out of Nassau include airlift into Grand Bahama, Abaco, Eleuthera, Exuma, Crooked Island, Acklins, Mayaguana, Inagua, San Salvador and Long Island in October 2016. Currently International routes that are operated include Florida – Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando. Other international routes include The Turks & Caicos and Havana, Cuba.

The airline's main purpose as the National Flag carrier is to provide an ‘Essential Service’ bridging Nassau, the nation’s capital and the remote Family of Islands. The national carrier was incorporated under the name Bahamasair Holdings Limited and resulted from the amalgamation of two privately owned carriers, Out Island Airways and Flamingo Airways. The airline remains wholly owned by the Bahamas Government. In December 1975, Bahamasair inaugurated scheduled services to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Recently, in 2001, Bahamasair inaugurated scheduled service to Havana, Cuba and in 2004 started flights to Santo Domingo.

Bahamasair and Silver Air pushed to the limits!

Bahamasair was recorded performing an "evasive manoeuvre" when it realised that there was a Silver Airways plane during a flight on Tuesday afternoon. There was never any huge risk involved. Passengers were aware of their proximity to another plane but the crew professionally reassured them that there was no cause for alarm. Apparently, this issue came about due to mixed coordinates. Air Traffic Control was made aware of the situation and reduced the aircraft's climb rate so the airline and Silver Air could pass by each other like planes in the night.

Bahamasair to upgrade B737 fleet profile

The national carrier of the Bahamas is looking to acquire a B737, capable of seating between 138 and 144 passengers, for use in improving its dispatch reliability as well as charter offerings. According to The Tribune-Herald newspaper, the country's Minister for Tourism and Aviation, Dionisio D’Aguilar said the incoming aircraft, believed to be aB737-700, would be funded through the transfer of collateral assets and would not be borne by the fiscus.

“The airline, in conjunction with its lenders, will seek to acquire the additional aircraft through the transfer of collateral assets," he said in a statement. "The banks are currently holding cash collateral on the company’s USD120 million loan and have indicated that they would be willing to allow the airline to replace the cash collateral with an additional aircraft as collateral.” The state-owned carrier currently operates three 120-seaterB737-500s alongside three ATR42-600s and three ATR72-600s. The Boeing jets are currently deployed on local trunk routes as well as services to Antigua & Barbuda, Cuba, Trinidad & Tobago, St. Lucia, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and various points in the US states of Florida, Illinois, Georgia, and Texas.

Bahamasair chairman: 'We'll be the best we can be'

The carrier's chairman stressed that the national flag carrier is fully on board with delivering a quality service, saying: "We want this airline to be the best it can be". Efforts are been made to extensively control costs and manage the performance of its domestic routes. The airline has been getting a $14 million subvention on average from the government.

“In 2016, the airline got a $120 million loan which has to be repaid. We know that, and so we know what we have to do and, right now, we are doing the best that we can.We’re trying our best to turn things around. I’m not going to make any declarations but I know that we are doing all that we can.” Mr Turnquest said the airline remains important to growing the country’s tourism product. “We recently launched our service to Houston, Texas, and we are excited about that service as well as the other international routes that we service, which allows for greater connectivity in bringing visitors to our shores,”.
